Lucky kangaroo, best dressed `roo in the Outback....Goretex is expensive gear. Very funny.

Hey, I think I might be part Kanga.

The gear I want a report on is on some of that Wagga Wagga Cabernet....I need a bottle for my WZ trek this summer...where can a `roo get some of that?

I hate it when that happens.

Wonder if the roo came back to drive the rover.

Wagga,

Thank you for the link to buy some Wagga Wagga Cabernet. A bottle of it is going on my Gear List. The corker cat is one classy cat.


+@2itd,

I was wondering the same thing about the `roo.

Kitty is a boy. His name is Merlin. He has an astonishing wardrobe.

Fromm an Amazon review:

"This book is a one-of-a-kind; the subtitle is: The Secret Life of Merlin, a cat adopted by the author and who is the model for all of the pictures. The book is a history of cats told in short essays and covering a period from prehistoric times to the present day. Merlin is a very patient cat and was posed and photographed by Mr. Weigal wearing a costume that illustrates the aspect of cat history or lore that is the subject of each essay.

The costumes were hand-made for Merlin and many of them are very elaborate. The book is a good source of information about cats and their place in our shared history. But what makes this book such a delight are the wonderful pictures of Merlin, who appears to have enjoyed the photography sessions, representing all cats from all periods of time.

Amazon didn't have this book in stock and neither did my local book dealer near my home.

Price: US$ 3.50
